Sony is showcasing 4K technology and its benefits in a security environment in the Middle East at IFSEC Arabia 2014. The company also announced the latest addition to its existing line up of fixed network cameras – the SNC-VB632D – demonstrating its continued innovation in the video security sector.
4K technology can be used in the security industry to drive new levels of image clarity and provide new opportunities for demanding security applications, allowing security professionals to monitor large areas in great detail with a single camera. Users would be able to monitor entire scenes, as well dynamically cropping the image to focus on multiple specific areas of interest.
“We at Sony believe that 4K will be the next resolution standard in the security industry,” says Aydin Tolan, business head, Visual Security Solutions, Sony Professional Solutions MEA. “IFSEC Arabia 2014 provides us with a great platform to demonstrate our innovations in the 4K space, as well as its benefits in video security. With major projects and infrastructure development taking place across the Middle East, we are keen to be part of the conversation when it comes to the latest security solutions.”
A key innovation Sony will be featuring at IFSEC Arabia is the SNC-VB632D Full HD infrared bullet camera, the latest addition to its outdoor camera range. The SNC-VB632D employs the newly adopted Dual Light system with infrared (IR) illuminator and white LED, working as an effective deterrent and allowing clear visibility under dark conditions in either black and white or colour. With the Dual Light system, the SNC-VB632D is the ideal all-in-one camera for transportation and city surveillance in complex environments.
Sony also has specialised security cameras for transport and city surveillance applications. With excellent image coverage under challenging lighting conditions and moving environments, Sony’s X, W, and E-Series are suited to all transportation needs, keeping travelers safe on- board, and traffic flowing smoothly. These include the SNC-XM631 minidome IP camera, which provides Full HD picture quality in a compact frame; SNC-WR602 high-performance rapid dome network camera, designed for dependable round-the-clock performance with high frame rate and powerful optical zoom; and SNC-EB630 fixed network camera featuring Sony’s award winning IPELA ENGINE EX processing platform and Full HD imaging quality.
On the other hand, the SNC-VB635 and SNC-WR632C are ideally suited for general city surveillance. With Full HD image quality, advanced analytics and high frame rate recording, every scene captured by the SNC-VB635 looks clearer, sharper and more detailed – even in challenging low-light conditions or with harsh backlighting where other cameras struggle. Extra intelligence is added by DEPA Advanced Intelligent Video Analytics that can intelligently trigger an alarm based on user-defined rules. The SNC-WR632C comes equipped with a sensitive, high-resolution Exmor™ CMOS sensor and Sony’s new IPELA ENGINE PRO™ processing platform, bringing superior image processing at Full HD resolution. The camera is designed for dependable round-the-clock performance in demanding outdoor environments; the unitised camera can operate in temperatures from -40°C to +50°C, and is IP66/IK10 rated to resist weather and unwelcome tampering by vandals.
Sony will hold live technology demonstrations at IFSEC Arabia to showcase the benefits of its security product range in challenging real-life surveillance requirements, including transport and city surveillance, as well as for utility industries like oil and gas and in power plants.
In addition to security solutions, Sony is showcasing their latest VPL-GTZ1 projector, designed for a range of B2B and commercial applications. The VPL-GTZ1 combines 4K, laser light source and ultra-short throw capabilities into one model, while its flexible installation and operation allow it to be floor-standing, ceiling-mounted or used for rear projection.
Sony will be located at I10 in Hall 2 at RICEC Riyadh.
